Sheffield United Denied By Ludicrous VAR Offside Decision Against Tottenham

David McGoldrick's equaliser for Sheffield United at Tottenham was controversially ruled out after a three-minute VAR delay.

The 31-year-old tapped in Enda Stevens' cross at the far post on the hour to drag the visitors level before more VAR madness.

The technology intervened once again and ruled out Sheffield United's goal, leaving manager Chris Wilder shaking his head on the sidelines.

After checking the goal for three whole minutes, VAR ruled that Carl Lundstrom was millimetres offside in the build-up to the goal.

Sky Sports presenter Jeff Stelling summed it up best when he shouted "What's happened to the game?" on Soccer Saturday.

Sheffield United thought they had levelled up just two minutes after Son Heung-min gave Tottenham the lead.

But a lengthy delay and some dubious red and blue lines drawn along the pitch cut short their celebrations.

The Blades did grab their equaliser in the 78th minute through George Baldock, and even that was checked vigorously by VAR.

"Goodness gracious me, I hate it," Stelling shouted on Soccer Saturday as the check was taking place.

VAR has been causing uproar in the Premier League this season with reviews taking an age and goals being ruled out by the slimmest of margins for offside.

Roberto Firmino had a strike ruled out for Liverpool against Aston Villa last Saturday when he appeared to be onside.
